Here in northern Germany we are in election mode and the local politicians are out and about I haven’t met anyone and nobody has called to the door. All I can surmise is that the election is fought on the local radio and some public meetings but the three main parties are all spouting the same and there is no real difference in policy .The all present themselves in been experts in business and industry .Apparently “The left “got into power the last time as a junior partners but they do not have seem to have any major effect and consequently are suffering at the polls. There is another colourful party called the pirates and they seem to be growing in popularity. On one of their posters I see their call for an end to backroom deals and call for more openness in politics ..I would vote for them if I could vote!!!
Billboards are all around the place (see photos) and this one from the CUD (Biggest party in Government) The CDU politician says to German children
Text says “For your future without debts”
Of course Irish children will be drowning in Deutsche Bank’s debts for the next two generations because these lying politicians haven’t the balls to tell the German people that they have in effect gambled away all of their savings and have managed to get the gullible Irish to pay interest on debts we haven’t a hope of ever paying back. All this is done because our own gutless politicians have sold us out to these spineless German politicians. No doubt the German People will wake up one day when the rest of Europe won’t buy any of their products and then the proverbial sh** will hit the fan!
Well enough of politics.
Visiting the town we have this group of travellers with their dinosaur exhibition. I went along to get a few photos for the kids at home! Judging from their big massive trucks they must be raking the lolly in!
The weather is not doing so well and we are experiencing April showers and some bright sunny spots every now and again but it is cold when the sun is not out. I am told it should start to be a lot warmer in the coming days!
I came across this fabulous jewellery shop in the Hux STR yesterday; do take a look when you visit Lubeck. I guarantee you will get a decent cup of tea and some most unusual silver rings and some extraordinary wooden carvings for your home. The shop is at the lower end of the street but Hux str is the best street for shopping and it is well worth the visit!
